The Open Topic Tenure Track Professorships are the core element of the institutional strategy of the Technical University of Dresden, Germany (TUD). With this novel recruiting procedure, TU Dresden aims at identifying scholars with outstanding records, ideally already in their post-doctoral phase or in the first stages of their careers in academia or business, and offering them a long-term perspective in their individual field of expertise.
The Open Topic Tenure Track Professorships are not targeted at specific areas of expertise or particular academic disciplines. The sole selection criteria are scientific excellence, innovation and the potential to advance research activities at TU Dresden.
Upon positive evaluation after the initial five-year appointment, the professorship will become tenured.
Detailed information on the application procedure including the schedule for the current appointment round can be found at the TUD website.
The application deadline for the first appointment round is 15 May 2013.
